DIY Princess Anna Dress Up Tutorial

My little red head loves to dress up.  She loves to pretend and make believe.  And especially all those princesses.  She loves them all!

When it comes to picking a princess, it is a struggle.  But I have a bit of a soft spot for a princess that teaches you to do "The Next Right Thing".

I mean, why wouldn't we love Anna?  She's a kind, a bit awkward and a beautiful red head!!

This quick diy anna costume is the perfect addition to our dress up box.  We already have a diy Elsa costume and added a Space Ranger earlier this year.

As with most of our girl dress up costumes, I am using the free Peasant Play Dress.  It is a great pattern that comes in many sizes and works for years.

For this dress, I designed a cut file to add to the authenticity.  You can get the Arendelle cut file at the end of the post.

Step 1
Color block the bodice top of the peasant dress.  Cut the pattern about 3" down from the top.  Add a 1/4" seam allowance to both the top and the bottom pieces.

Cut your fabric out.

Tip:  Check out the video to see how exactly I do this with the pattern.

Step 2
With Right Sides Together (RST), sew the top of the bodice to the bottom.

Repeat with back bodice.

Your bodice should look like this.  Add the elastic in the sleeves and neckline.  

You can wait to do this step at the end as well.

Match the bodice top to the gathered skirt.  Gather the skirt to be the same width as the top.  

Place the two with right sides together and stitch together.
